The last time these two sides met was on the opening day of the season, the Millers were top after five minutes, but bottom after 90.

Tonight at Mill Field (weather permitting) the Millers will host Bury Town, with the pitch wet and soft at this moment in time more rain could see the match called off. But we are hoping this match remains on.

Since 2006 the Millers and Bury a Town have met 10 times with games in the FA Trophy and the Ryman Football Leagues. And it's far to say that Bury Town could be considered favourites. The Millers have won 2, compared to Bury Town winning 8.

Those eight matches for Bury Town that they have won, in the last six they have won every single game. With the Millers scoring three goals against Bury in five years.

Both teams come into this game from a 0-0 draw on Saturday. But in recent form Bury Town have three wins; Witham (1-0), Great Wakering (1-0), Redbridge (4-1), one defeat; Maldon & Tiptree (1-2); and one draw; Phoenix Sports (0-0). This could see Bury Town be the favourites against the Millers.

However Aveley have done well in 2016 with; three clean sheets, two wins, a draw and one defeat against Harlow Town who have won ten matches on the trot and find themselves in second place.
